The Voices in Bronze Handbell Choir – Fonda Davies, Director
The Voices in Bronze Handbell Choir is a group of musicians who enjoy ringing and making music together on a 5 1/2 octave set of Malmark Handbells. The choir also plays a 4 1/2 octave set of Malmark Handchimes, and often combines the two different instruments in a special musical piece. A recent exciting addition is two octaves of Cymbells. They play monthly for worship, Christmas and Easter, and at special concerts during the year. New ringers are always welcome. For information, contact Fonda Davies at the church office at 941.474.5588, Ext. 269.
Summer Choir – Fonda Davies, Director
We would love to have some new voices while many of our northerners are gone for the summer. Rehearsals for the summer months are June 14 & 28; July 12 & 26; and August 9 & 23. All rehearsals are on Thursday at 7:00pm in the Williamson Music Suite. During the summer months, the adults are joined by middle and high school age students as they share their music at the 11:00 am worship services. This is a great time to “try out the choir” to see if you would like to be a part of this wonderful group during the ‘season’. Additional voices are always welcome, especially while our ‘snowbirds’ are up north. For information, contact Fonda Davies at the church office at 941.474.5588, ext. 269.
First Sunday Choir – Fonda Davies, Director
This group of volunteers sings the first Sunday of the month, October through June, at the 7:45 a.m. worship service. They gather in the Williamson Music Suite at 7:15 a.m. prior to the service. The anthems usually consist of a familiar hymn. If you like to sing, this is a great opportunity to bring special music to the early service. All are welcome. For information, contact Fonda at the church office at 941.474.5588.
“Fusion by Fire” Praise Team – Rich Church, Director
The 9:15 am Contemporary Worship Service is a great service for all ages. Young and old love the Contemporary singing. EUMC has a great “Praise Team” that leads the congregation in worship, along with our pastors. Fusion by Fire practices each week in the Sanctuary. The Team is open by audition to high school age and above. If you have talent in singing, or if you play an instrument and would like to join this group, please contact Rich at 941.474.5588 to audition.
